If you are interested in shogi maybe you want to buy your first shogi set for practice with your friends.
There are not so many shops that sell the board and the pieces so the fastest way can be bought it online. Amazon is a big and trusty online shop so I recommend that one. There are some differents boards so you can choose which you want.
For start maybe you can choose a small and cheap set. The board is made of paper and the pieces are made of plastic but it includes a manual written in English.
Another option is a Magnetic Travel Game Set. Is a small and portable set so you can play anywhere.
But if what you really want is to enjoy shogi I really recommend you a wooden board with wood pieces. The sound of the pieces when are moved is really beautiful and you can really enjoy it.
If you are interested in buy directly a board from Japan maybe I can help you.
Do you already have one? Where did you buy it? Please share it with everyone!
